A colleague came back from lunch the other day and told us all that she’d bought a pair of runners and they were a bargain because she saved nearly $100. There was a bit of back and forth teasing from her male colleagues about the amount she’d spent, not the amount she saved. They just don’t get it. I’m of the belief that if you needed something anyway, then why not try for a bargain. When I go shopping for clothes, shoes, electronics and the like I rarely pay full price. There always seems to be a sale on these days, so much so that I’ll wait for sales for particular items from particular stores because they have them so regularly.
I’d heard about websites where there were online sales of designer type stuff, and I mean sales – 70-90% off the retail price of most things. I’ve even bought some things – cosmetics – from one of these sites and was really pleased with my purchases.
Recently I was contacted to try out Ozsale.com.au, and to offer a $50 voucher to spend on the site for one lucky commenter.
A couple of things to note, each brand is an individual transaction so you need to do one lot at a time, with separate delivery charges. I’d prefer to lump everything in together but I can see why they do it. Using the website is very simple and intuitive and I whizzed through my order in no time. I feel like it’s a bit of a lucky dip when ordering clothes online but the descriptions and photos are usually pretty good.
And as for what you can buy: clothes (for men, women and kids), accessories, watches, makeup, shoes etc.
I do miss the tactileness of shopping in person so I don’t think I’ll ever give that up, but shopping online is exciting because you get a parcel in the post and it’s like unwrapping a present. I can’t wait till I get mine.
To enter to be in the draw for the $50 voucher, please comment on this post before midnight on Sunday 29 August. This is only open to Australian residents. Note that the voucher does not include delivery.
UPDATE: My random number picker, ie my son, picked comment number 2, so Joyjoyc, it’s you. I’ll be in touch.
